Welcome to the Nifty Web Apps tutorial: learn how to build a simple web app for any console-based programming assignment. All materials are open source on GitHub.
In this tutorial, we’ll use, modify, and create (Lytle et al. 2019) simple web apps that take a string query and return a list of results. We offer the tutorial in two programming languages: Python and Java.
The Autocomplete web app takes a string prefix and displays the list of matches on top of Google Maps. Compare the web app with the desktop app and the console app.
